Philanthropist and Founder/Managing Director of Fekomi Global Nigeria Ltd, a parent company of Fekomi Herbals, Mr. Adefemi Komiyo Lawrence, has given a cash gift of N100,000 to an aged woman selling fruits to clear her debts and help her continue dealing in her business.
The herbal expert made the donation on Tueeday through Givers Supportive Foundation (GSF) after hearing the pathetic story of the woman.
Lawerence, who paid a visit to the woman at her business location, said she has been through many difficult situations in life with four children to take care of. According to him, the woman who sells fruits, collects them on credit.
He said: “This woman has been passing through a lot with four children. She sells fruits, but mostly she collects all the fruit she sells on credit and returns back the money.
“Today I paid her a surprise visit at her stand, I asked her what help did she needed and she said if she can get a sum of N100,000 to clear all her debts and continue to sell her fruits without getting them on credit. A total sum N100,000 was given to her and she was surprised and very happy.
While doling out the cash, he urged Nigerians to keep helping people passing through difficulties, adding that they should make it a habit to support others because “we rise by lifting others.”
